The goal of coal mining is to obtain coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content, and, since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United States, United Kingdom, and South Africa, a coal mine and its structures are a colliery. In Australia, "colliery" generally refers to an underground coal mine. Coal mining has had many developments over the recent years, from the early days of men tunneling, digging and manually extracting the coal on carts to large open cut and long wall mines. Mining at this scale requires the use of draglines, trucks, conveyors, jacks and shearers. - H&T

Germany has closed its last black coal mine today, a milestone marking the end of a 200-year-old industry that once fuelled the country's economic growth but lost the battle against cheaper foreign competitors. The remaining 1,500 workers of the Prosper-Haniel mine in Bottrop made their final descent into the pit's belly, greeting each other one more time with the traditional "Glueck auf, Kumpel", or "Good luck, buddy". The miners ended their shift by bringing up the last chunk of "black gold" and handing it to President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, in a ceremony also to be attended by European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker. A mining choir will has sung the miners' anthem "Steigerlied" and local churches will held special services in what promises to be a poignant farewell to a historic era in western Germany's industrial Ruhr heartland. The 150-year-old deep-shaft colliery, whose galleries were dug by six generations of miners and sealed up for good. Although the closure comes amid a growing environmental outcry against coal, the dirtiest fossil fuel, it wasn't pollution concerns but cheaper imports from abroad that sounded the mine's death knell. Dating back to the 19th century, the coal mines, plants and steel mills that once dotted the Ruhr basin were long the beating heart of Germany's industrial prowess, powering its economic "miracle" after World War II. At its peak, the mining industry employed 600,000 people. But Germany's dominance in the black-coal market started to wane in the 1960s as foreign rivals made it cheaper to import the raw material. Today most of the black coal, also known as hard coal, used in Germany's coal-fired power plants comes from Russia, the United States, Australia and Colombia. Chancellor Angela Merkel's government decided in 2007 to phase out state aid and shutter the last black coal mines by 2018 -- giving the workers of Prosper-Haniel 11 years' notice.

Climate change is happening. And one industry in particular will have to undergo a huge transformation and all but disappear by 2050…. The coal industry. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2TVSSsk But what does this mean for that industry and governments around the world? And what about the workers the coal industry employs? We’re taking a look at the steps one country is taking to prepare for a clean energy economy, while trying to make sure no one gets left behind. To avoid the most devastating consequences of climate change, a United Nations panel of scientists has recently warned that drastic action is required around the world. In Spain. Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez government's priorities was taking immediate action to address climate change. That meant drastic action to limit Spain’s coal industry. The country had to comply with a European Union directive that said that public funds could no longer be used to keep unprofitable coal mines open. This meant that those mines had to be shut down by the end of 2018. And that is exactly what happened. By December of 2018, roughly three out of four of Spain’s coal miners clocked out of work for the last time. Spain’s socialist government cut a deal with several affiliated miner’s unions, referred to as the ‘Just Transition’ deal.” So we’re taking a look at the innovative steps Spain is taking to prepare for a clean energy economy, while trying to make sure no one gets left behind.

Germany's coal mining industry is all but finished as viable coal seams are worked out. Following an earthquake, mines in the Saarland will close in 2012 and mining in North Rhine-Westphalia's will end in 10 years at most. But German mining equipment is still in demand; more than a hundred mostly medium-sized businesses have found customers in countries where mining is booming. One such company is Eickhoff, in Bochum, which produces milling and cutting equipment for coal mining. Now Eickhoff exports 95% of its mining equipment, mainly to China and Russia. Robert Donauer went to a mine in the Ruhr Valley and paid a visit to Eickhoff.

New video up! "Tesla Face ID Hack" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XeQ2mxI-fR0 --~-- The coal industry in the US is almost dead, but it wasn’t renewables that killed it. Get new updates straight to your inbox here https://teslanomics.co/join "The biggest contributor to coal and nuclear plant retirements has been the advantaged economics of natural gas-fired generation,” says a recent report by the Department of Energy. It also found that the rise of renewable energy, such as wind and solar, hasn’t yet created any problems for reliability and resilience of the electricity grid. The report also recommends that the department shouldn’t intervene in energy markets, such as using funds to support coal. Between 2012 and 2017, the US shut approximately 50 gigawatts (GW) of coal-fired generation capacity. If planned retirements are taken into consideration, the future for coal looks even bleaker. When President Obama was in office he created the Clean Power Plan which was aimed at lowering the CO2 emissions from the US by capturing some of the carbon emitted and increasing the mix of renewable forms of energy like Wind and Solar. In March of 2017, the Trump administration repealed this hoping it would, as he said “save the coal industry” however the report from the DOE suggests otherwise. Their report predicts into the future we’ll see more and more natural gas and less coal and nuclear. One of the main reasons is because of how much more efficient Natural Gas is compared to Coal and Nuclear. While Coal and Nuclear are similar regarding the heat generated during the process of creating electricity, the heat generated using Natural Gas has continued to decline, giving it a greater overall efficiency. The nail in the coffin for the solar industry could be renewables which combined with Natural Gas, will deliver the final blow the coal industry, laying it to rest once and for all. #hallelujah A big reason for this is because of the cost of renewables. Some forecasts suggest that the levelized average cost of electricity (LCOE) per kWh will drop significantly by 2025 making Solar from PhotoVoltaic panels and onshore wind the cheapest in the world. And we’re already seeing a huge spike in Solar investments here in the US in recent years, now accepting for almost 10% of the overall grid. So I want to say thank you to Rick Perry, for ordering this study and helping us move closer towards a brighter future where not only is our energy better for the environment, but cheaper and more sustainable as well. In fact, he will probably come around once he realizes how many more jobs the renewable energy industry is creating. His own department put out a report in showing that the Solar industry alone employed more than double the number of coal employees across the US. Like any high-level figures though, this metric didn't tell the true story as there was a job disparity across the states. Coal was by far the bigger employer in some areas still. But the point here is that there is indeed a big market for energy workers in the US and just because the Coal industry is vanishing, it doesn’t mean the jobs will vanish as well, they’ll likely just change slightly. // Sources https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/04/25/climate/todays-energy-jobs-are-in-solar-not-coal.html https://qz.com/1061246/a-new-department-of-energy-report-explains-why-coal-is-dying-in-the-us/ // New here?

Russian/Nat Industrial unrest is growing in former Soviet Republic of Kazakhstan. The country's flagship industry - coal mining - is facing economic ruin in the wake of market reforms. Nearly one in five of Kazakhstan's pits have been shut down by strikes after miners went almost six months without pay. Clouds are gathering over the once-flourishing coal industry in the Central Asian republic of Kazakhstan. In its heyday, the Karaganda basin was key to the Soviet Union's mighty industrialisation programme. But now the region's mines are on the brink of catastrophe. Market reforms in the republic have severed generous subsidies from the pits, paralysing investment and wages. But the pit directors are forbidden to raise the price of coal to cover their debts. The mines are forced to provide coal to other industries - but many of these plants cannot pay them back for the energy. Formerly one of the Soviet Union's best rewarded professions, the payments crisis has left over 100-thousand mine workers unpaid for almost six months. The mine managers no longer try to hide the depth of the problem: SOUNDBITE: (In Russian) "The situation has now reached a critical point. We have been virtually unable to pay salaries since December and our debts just keep rising." SUPER CAPTION: Alexander Karev, Mine Director Four of the area's 22 pits are now on indefinite strike. Kazakh legislation all but throttles official trade union action. But the miners have sidestepped their unions and taken affairs into their own hands, organising local strike committees and sharing what little funds are at their disposal. Hostility towards the government is increasing: SOUNDBITE: (In Russian) "They don't care how ordinary workers live, what they have for lunch or dinner, how they can feed their children. We haven't been paid for our labour for six months now. They give us just a pittance and there's not much you can get for a pittance." SUPER CAPTION: Guseyn Khadzhiev, Miner Special shops for miners were once stacked with goods that were unavailable in regular Soviet stores. Now they are virtually barren. Despairing of the government and the ineffectiveness of their trade unions, thousands of miners have already fled Kazakhstan in search of work in neighbouring Russia and Ukraine. The Denishenkos live in a cramped apartment near the pits in Karaganda. Tanya, disabled since birth, is unable to work. Her husband Ivan supports her, their daughter and his mother-in-law: SOUNDBITE: (In Russian) "My family is beginning to starve. There's no money for food, no money for clothes, to say nothing of medicine. I have no idea how we can carry on." SUPER CAPTION: Ivan Denishenko, Miner Working conditions have worsened - 26 miners were killed in accidents last year. 35 miners at this pit refused to come to the surface since Thursday, announcing an indefinite hunger strike. A letter of protest was sent to the Kazakh president, Nursultan Nazarbayev, listing the miners' complaints. But so far there's been no reply and the men are in no mood for compromise as mines stand idle, apart from safety checks.

In the 1970s, South Africa was the world's most prolific exporter of gold. Over the years, industrial decline has seen widespread closures of the mines across the country. However, Johannesburg sits on the biggest gold basin ever discovered. It's perhaps not surprising that many of these abandoned mines have seen a recent boom in illegal mining activity. Everyday, hundreds of illegal gold miners, known as Zama Zamas, descend kilometers deep beneath the surface. The miners often spend weeks underground, toiling away at the country's untapped gold reserves. Observers have suggested that illegal mining is now so widespread, black-market gold arguably supports the communities once subsistent on the very same mines they worked in before they shut down. The lack of policing in the mines has seen the practice go on largely unabated. However, in the absence of law enforcement, the extensive network of abandoned mines beneath the region has become an arena to deadly gang warfare between rival factions. VICE News visited illegal mines near Johannesburg, to meet the Zama Zamas risking life and limb everyday in the violent struggle for South Africa's illegal gold.

South Africa has some of the world’s biggest reserves of platinum, gold, iron ore and coal. But mining now makes up less than 7% of its economic output, a steep fall from 20% in the 1970s. Mining companies are blaming low prices and soaring production costs for their plans to cut thousands of jobs at a time the country is struggling with high unemployment rates. Mining is also intertwined with race relations in South Africa. The people who work deep underground in often dangerous conditions are overwhelmingly black, while the executives overseeing them are mainly white. Some of the firms have pushed back against government plans to make them bring on more black shareholders. So, is it a losing battle for the mining sector? And can South Africa move away from its dependence on commodities? Presenter: Mohammed Jamjoom Guests: Lebohang Pheko - Senior Research Fellow at Trade Collective - a non-profit think-tank. Moleko Phakedi - Deputy General Secretary, South African Federation of Trade Unions.

A public domain video A film about the history of underground coal mining throughout the years. The disasters and the health regulations. -The Monongah Mining Disaster was the worst mining accident in American history; 362 men and young boys were killed in an underground explosion on December 6, 1907 in Monongah, West Virginia. -Following a decade in which the number of coal mining fatalities exceeded 2,000 annually, Congress established the Bureau Of Mines in 1910 as a new agency in the Department of the Interior. The Bureau was to investigate accidents, advise industry, conduct production and safety research, and teach courses in accident prevention, first aid, and mine rescue. However, Congress did not empower the federal inspectors to enter and inspect mines until 1941, and did not authorize a code of federal regulations for mine safety until 1947. The Federal Coal Mine Health and Safety Acts of 1969 and 1977 set greater safety standards for the industry. Where annual mining deaths had numbered more than 1,000 a year in the early part of the 20th century, they decreased to an average of about 500 in the late 1950s.

In Southafrica, people living next to cole mines or coal-fired power stations lose their land, their health and the access to water. As suppliers of components for the giant power stations Kusile and Medupi, German companies like SIEMENS, Bilfinger Berger or Rheinmetall Defense Electronics bear a responsibility for those problems in the coal sector of South Africa.
